My eyes must be permanently broken from the amount of times that I rolled them and my forehead must be red from the amount of times that I slapped it. I can't with this book, I tried, I really did, but I couldn't. Ari is supposed to be this tough girl who has had military training since early childhood yet her thinking pattern does not reflect the disciplined and heavily structured way a soldier in training ought to be.

Only Ari is not upset because whatever fluid is falling on her is 'sweet' and its coming from the main love interest. Major EEWWWW!
